Our November 14th meeting was attended by 56 members and 1 guest.
• After welcoming those assembled, President Carson Plant introduced our guest speaker, 11 Star Master Photographer Juraj Dolanski.
Starting off with an audio/visual show called Frozen Art, Juraj showed us how to create fascinating works of art by photographing frost on a pane of glass. He then went on to demonstrate how he uses close-up filters, reversing lenses, bellows and macro lenses to capture his excellent images. His hands-on demonstrations gave us a brief introduction into the world of Macro photography and taught us some new methods to try out during the long, cold winter. The Chatham Camera Club wishes to thank Mr. Dolanski for sharing his time and talent and for making the journey from Hamilton to Chatham. For a review of Juraj’s program, see his Holy Macro Summary.

• Our next meeting will be held on November 28th when two of The Club’s most accomplished photographers will be featured. John St. Pierre will present a tutorial on Infrared Photography and David Barr’s photographs will be highlighted in our What I Shoot segment.
• We invite all of our members to bring in a print of any size, any subject, to be viewed before the meeting begins and during the break. C’mon, we know you have a photo you’d just love to show us. Now is your chance.
To consult the rules of composition before making a picture
is a little like consulting the law of gravity before going for a walk.
